You can’t STOP people from saying things. You can’t PREVENT all the negative, but you don’t have to allow that to get INTO your spirit. You can dismiss it, and say, “You know what? I’m NOT DWELLING on it. I’m not going the next three days worried, playing out all the “what ifs,” wondering why they said that”.
You can’t be PASSIVE and let everything in. You’ve got to be PROACTIVE and put some walls up. GUARD what you dwell on. Be SELECTIVE what you give your time and attention to. Your destiny is too important to allow poison in.
